YouTuber Emma Chamberlain has addressed controversy that began after she deactivated her Twitter on the day US election results emerged, after rumors spread about her political affiliation. Chamberlain has now responded on Instagram.

19-year-old Emma Chamberlain is a hugely popular YouTuber with 9.6 million subscribers, who established herself on the site via her relatable content, and quirky editing style. She is without a doubt a social media sensation, and has been a huge part of popularizing certain editing techniques that are used by creators across the platform.

The YouTube star and coffee entrepreneur has previously revealed that she keeps tight-lipped on matters relating to her love life, and the same can be said for her decision to openly discuss drama.

The star even started her own coffee brand.

However, Emma was forced to respond when a rumor that she deactivated her Twitter account because she’s a Republican got way out of hand.

Amid the chaos that followed election day, some fans noticed that Emma had seemingly deactivated her Twitter account, with tweets not loading on her account that previously had 3.9 million followers.

Some people found it odd that the deactivation happened the same day Joe Biden was projected to become president of the United States, and began sleuthing to find out Emma’ political affiliation.

Screenshots began to circulate of the voting database, showing someone named Emma Chamberlain, aged 19, living in West Hollywood, who is a registered Republican.

Despite the fact that her name is not particularly obscure, many people assumed that this must be the YouTube star’s voting record, and began speaking out on social media against her.

After the chaos, Emma was forced to address the situation via Instagram. “I really don’t like to engage in any internet drama/ lies,” she began. “But today is a VERY big day. Today is a day to celebrate.”

Emma posted the response to her Instagram story.

She went on to say “I really don’t want to spend today defending made up facts about me. I hope we can all come together today, celebrate, and LOVE each other. The future is very bright. I love you all so much. Every single one of you.”

Many came to defend Emma on social media, and called out people who were using unreliable websites to make assumptions about political affiliation, and “jumping to conclusions.”

When things have calmed down it may be that Emma addresses the bizarre rumors further, but it seems for now she wants to avoid focusing on the drama.

LS reveals how xQc reached out to him during T1 fans backlash

Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare has revealed that Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel reached out to him during the T1 backlash offering his support and advice.

T1’s accidental leak that revealed LS was set to be the organization’s new League of Legends coach resulted in a wave of backlash against both parties.

Fans of the organization opted to send unjustifiable racial and homophobic abuse towards LS, as well as doxxing his grandmother and sending packages to her address. T1, from an outside perspective, did not handle the situation appropriately and seemingly offered little support to LS during this period.

This resulted in LS disabling his Twitter and going completely dark for a short period of time. This was no doubt due to the amount of hate and criticism he was receiving from T1 fans. One person who reached to support him was huge Twitch personality xQc.

LS revealed on stream that the Twitch personality reached out to him in support. “Before I disabled my Twitter and went dark on everything, xQc was one of the very few people who reached out to me,” he said.

It was obvious LS was surprised he had reached out to him due to the streamer’s popularity: “Despite the fact that I’m like an insect compared to him, in terms of like brand and size and everything, it’s very nice.”

LS repeated multiple times that xQc is a “real one”, showing his appreciation for his support and care.

It’s clear that xQc reaching out to LS really meant a lot to him and helped him get through the difficult patch. Sometimes, just reaching out to somebody going through a hard time can make a world of difference.

Now, it’s just great to see LS back on track with the League of Legends content and streaming again.
